Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**
Just looking at the images in the link Trekker sent, found one or two sites before that had similar images but those are awesome.
Also, one of the graphics gives a front, top and side graphic of the helicarrier, while looking I noticed a time tab at the top left. It says "12.02.2012".
Now is the helicarrier using the American or international dating system? it either means most of the film happens around 12th of February or 2nd of December.
Although since it also his login underneath as "Samuel J. Fury" I think it's not meant to be taken seriously.
A fan-made timeline I like to refer to (as opposed to the official one put out by Marvel) places the events of the movie in February, which would agree with that graphic if its using the international dating system.
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
